Waterbury, CT - Wednesday saw the AHL Trade Deadline come and go. There was some movement that’s documented below in the Notes section. For the Hartford Wolf Pack. the lineup for the remainder of this season is secure, but for the Rangers, the work begins to look at the organizational depth as a whole, and they’ll need to outline the needs for the team for the 2014-2015 season.

Let’s look at each of the positions: Continue reading

Gerry-Cantlon1-150x150It was David LeNeveu‘s goal to return from Europe to play pro hockey in North America and he had a plan to get there; he couldn’t have imagined just how it would work out.

Last year, LeNeveu was in the Austrian Elite League playing for EHC Linz. At the end of that year he made a decision, along with his wife, of what he wanted in his career as he was going to enter his eleventh year after a solid season with a 2.60 GAA in his second stint of European hockey.
